The main characters from "Knocked Up", Ben (Seth Rogen) and Alison (Katherine Heigl), do not appear in this "sort-of sequel", but references to both characters are made: A picture of Alison can be seen on the wall and Pete mentions getting marijuana cookies from Ben. Three other, more minor characters from Knocked Up, do appear in this movie as well: Charlyne Yi's character Jodi (an amiable stoner in Knocked up; now an employee in Debbie's store), Jason Segal's character Jason (one of Ben's best friends with a crush on Debbie in Knocked Up; now Debbie's persona trainer) and Tim Bagley reprises his role as OB/GYN Dr. Pellagrino.

A truly awful and depressing film that continues several trends in entertainment.
The first being that just about every "comedy" produced any more centers around the idea there is humor in dissecting the abject misery of men who are in relationships with emasculating, selfish, miserable witches who loath the men in their lives.
The next being that Paul Rudd and Jason Segel appear to be in a competition of sorts to see who can take on the most roles where they play the pathetic, cuckolded husbands of these revolting women. Indeed this movie was so painful to watch half way through my wife insisted we turn it off stating that if either of these two actors appears in a cast of a film she will not watch it.
Other reviewers have said things like this film is an example of what's wrong with the country, not sure if I'd go that far but it's at the very least an example of what's wrong with Hollywood and its sick, twisted view of life and relationships outside Malibu. Anyone who sees merit or humor in films like this really has some deep rooted issues they should be seeking help for.
Just a horrible film in every possible way.
